Silk shirts are one of the most versatile items a woman can wear. Easily dressed up, they are equally at home with a pair of jeans for a casual night out, or with smart trousers for everyday wear to work. However versatility is not the only benefit of choosing to buy silk shirts; they’re incredibly robust and comfortable too.
Of all the materials we choose to wear, silk is probably the most durable. It’s very strong, and will hold its shape for many, many years (provided it is cared for properly). The fact that silk is a relatively expensive material therefore is offset by the knowledge that silk shirts, and other silk goods, will last for many wears and washes, and many years to come.
Silk is in addition, very comfortable. The material itself is very similar in structure to human skin, which is why it feels so fantastic against it. This similarity also means that silk is a naturally hypoallergenic material; perfect for those who suffer with asthma, eczema or any other allergies often aggravated by cheaper fabrics.
Those who suffer with allergies will benefit not just from wearing silk clothing such as silk shirts; they will also benefit should they choose to invest in silk bedding. Many allergies are aggravated by the enzymes located in the droppings of dust mites, however dust mites hate silk and so by choosing silk as a bedding material, the amount of dust mites located within the bedding will fall substantially. Allergy sufferers should notice a significant improvement in their standard of sleep following a switch to silk bedding.
In fact, choosing to wear silk shirts, silk gloves or even purchasing silk bedding will not only benefit allergy sufferers, but it will also benefit those who suffer with an incredibly common condition – dry skin. Silk contains natural amino acids which are able to help our skin reabsorb lost moisture. Wearing silk shirts during the day can assist in areas where dry skin is common such as the chest and arms. Silk gloves can also be purchased for those who suffer with dry skin on their hands. However, the benefits of silk to dry skin are most noticeable at night time, through the introduction of silk bedding.
Another reason that silk shirts and silk bedding are so comfortable is that they are naturally thermal. This means that silk will cool us down when we are hot, and warm us up when we are cold. This makes silk shirts a fantastic choice for all-day wear, wherein the temperature may change substantially a number of times. Silk shirts are also fantastic to wear in stressful situations, where sudden bouts of stress may cause our core temperature to rise rapidly.
Silk bedding again, is very beneficial for the same reason. Conventional duvets trap heat and keep raising our body’s temperature throughout the night. This can lead to interrupted sleep and in some cases, could even be dangerous. However, silk duvets are manufactured in such a way as to allow heat to escape through the duvet, ensuring that we are kept warm but never get too hot.
